I’ve been slacking horribly with my blog recently. I truly apologize. I know I’m breaking a cardinal blogger rule (never apologize for not posting) but I really AM sorry. I keep getting emails, texts, tweets… Readers and friends who are genuinely concerned for my happiness.
First, let me just say I love you guys! I love that there are so many people cheering me on. Wanting to ensure I am doing well. I never in a million years thought I would become a blogger, and when I DID start my blog, I never thought I would become a writer in which people actually started caring about not only my blog, but ME.
Second, I truly am happy. I am doing quite great, considering how August went for me! I haven’t been avoiding my blog because I don’t want to talk about how miserable things are in my neck of the woods. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Honestly, I’ve just been very busy LIVING! I have done more living in the last month than I did in the entire year and a half prior.
I have laughed more, danced more, stayed out later than I ‘should’ more, spent more time with friends… It truly has been a blessing in disguise coming back home for a month. I have some incredible people in my life. This town will eat you alive, but it also has some of the most hilarious and genuine human beings I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. With that being said I am eagerly counting down the SECONDS to the 25th. That is when I’m flying down to Texas to find an apartment in Austin!!!
Let’s get down to brass tax though, right?! How has Rock n Roll San Antonio training been going?! Training was better than it ever has been when I first moved home. I was hitting my mileage at a pace I have NEVER been able to pull off, and it was starting to feel almost effortless to stay at that pace. But then last week I came down with what I thought was a cold. I couldn’t breathe without coughing my lungs up. I literally couldn’t breathe through my nose and everything in my body ached. A week+ later of my chest feeling like someone filled it with quick sand and I marched down to see a Dr….. Turns out I have Bronchitis. Great. It wasn’t as bad of news as it immediately sounded… I feel 100% better other than this lingering cough. It will be fine all day, until I go outside for too long, or walk fast, and yes of course… RUN. Then I get a fit. I can’t stop coughing until I literally fear I’m going to die from not being able to come up for air.
I’m not worrying about it too much. I know now that I’ve already got one half marathon under my belt, I will be able to complete the distance. So long as I focus on getting healthy, I’ll be able to crush 2:30. If I miss even another week of training I can still make up for it, so long as my lungs are healthy. That’s my main priority right now… I’m still running, just not able to hit any speed or significant distance. I don’t use an inhaler so when my fits start up, all I can do is bring it to a jog or even walk… I’m not trying to do more damage to my already pissed off respiratory system.
so tell me, whats new with all of YOU?!
I miss y’all!
